How many of you got a Havoc running a number? I got a little 1448 Rhino flatty right now and I have beaten it about completely to death. It's a .125" hull, but I got caught in a bad storm and things just went down hill. Drag racing with the Merc on it just exacerbated things. Here's the part where ya'll probably tell me to kick rocks, I ain't hunting out of the boat. Just going to run the TN river and some back waters with my girl and dogs. On Wednesdays all the jon boats and skis get out there and act a fool and run for fun. Going to see if I can order the hull with a raw aluminum finish instead of the camo. I'm most curious on the RDB model. Lighter weight should help me. I won't be bouncing off stumps or trees unless something real bad has happened but the water on Lake Guntersville can be wild sometimes when we on that side of town. That 8* hull cut through the waves alright? About how much does the 1550 RDB weigh? My current hull is a fatty at 360 pounds. Hoping the RDB is sub 400 in the size mentioned. Last question is on the pad. I have read just about every google hit I've found while searching, but can't seem to find much recent info on how the pad hull is working. Gonna be running a modded Merc 50. Thanks for the help fellas.
